    I adore this site. You find and make friends all of whom have n affinity towards each other. Distance her is no object and we ar all constantly learning. Quilters give gererously of their time and knowledge . I love the pictures only problem my bucket list is growing too fast. Here you also learn a new language , batting, basting etc. and how to write the date. People also offer excellent advise and if we don't do it no one gets hurt. Quilters, male and female are a bunch of delightful friends. I will keep coming. Maureen.

    I visit this site for education; inspiration; encouragement and just plain fun.

    As for your friend that's quilted 30 years. I too know someone like that. She thinks she has nothing else to learn about quilting. I respectfully disagree. The day any of us stop learning is a sad day.

    Oh I certainly don't think this board is only for beginners but it definitely is welcoming to all wherever you are in your quilting journey. I notice some of the older ladies I quilt with are completely put off by anything having to do with the computer, so, it can be hard to pull some people onto a web site. I can say when I began quilting ten years ago I didn't know much more than how to turn my sewing machine on and boards like this have truly meant everything to me! I am a stay at home Mom so there aren't tons of opportunities for me to get out and learn from others...and to be honest, at some point the information I learned on my own surpassed much of what those I know offline can share with me!

    I wish I had more time to come to the board...but I do come to share what I can, to answer questions if I know the answers, to be inspired by quilts shown. I am hoping soon my son will have time to show me how to upload pictures to the computer...then I can show some of my quilts.

    All of the above. The only thing I don't like about it is that I spend way too much time here.

    Like many others, I find this sight full of inspiring pictures and stories and lots of helpful tips and information. My quilting will never compare to many here but I love how much I have learned from this site.

    I like the board because there are so many topics. I not only come for the quilting, but like the recipes and the off topic conversations. There's something for everytine here and it's like a friendly community. This is my favorite site.

    I'm new to quilting and just joined the board this past week. It's a great source of how-to's, hints, tips, best tools and materials, etc. for me. I'm also really enjoying the pictures of people's projects (finished and not), and the little stories about problems and victories.

    I come to get inspiration for my next quilts (my bucket list has about 7,942 quilts on it), info on tips, techniques and tools. An equally important incentive is to put off housework just a few more minutes. Those pots & pans need to soak a bit more!
